Hear what folks are saying:

“The third time was the charm for Newfoundland-based, B.C.-born singer-songwriter Allison Crowe. After film director Zack Snyder tried to get one of Crowe's songs into the 2009 film ‘Watchmen’ and again in 2011 with ‘Sucker Punch,’ he finally succeeded this year. The film is the summer blockbuster ‘Man Of Steel’ and features Crowe in a cameo role .” ~ Jason MacNeil, Huffington Post

"After a surprise cameo in the summer blockbuster movie Man of Steel and the release of her exquisite traditional folk covers album, ‘Newfoundland Vinyl’, Allison quickly rushed back into the studio to write, record, engineer, produce and create the cover art for her upcoming album, ‘Heavy Graces’... it seems our favorite independent singer-songwriter is more determined than ever to forge her own path. I predict we’ll be seeing Allison Crowe not once but twice on our best of the year list." ~ Victoria McCabe, Muruch

"Allison Crowe is a stunningly talented performer. Her voice celebrates the music with a bluesy rock-gospel intensity; her controlled vibrato, silken rasp, and powerful projection rivet your attention. This is no casual background music... be prepared to be amazed." ~ Carol Swanson, ChristmasReviews.com

“Amidst her long list of accomplishments - you can add Big Screen Star. Just this past summer Allison Crowe took on the familiar role of a singer in Zack Snyder's Superman blockbuster MAN OF STEEL (2013). Allison's cameo has her performing the Johnny Cash classic ‘Ring of Fire’." ~ Stephanie Beaumont, Sea and Be Scene

"Allison Crowe's voice is as much a manifestation of Christmas spirit today as Bing Crosby's was in 1942. It's as warm as an open fire; as gorgeous as snow-frosted evergreens; as tender as that hug you give your mother on Christmas day." ~ Stephen Smysnuik, The Pique
